Ziptie screw

Here is an oversize example of a ziptie screw: Save all the zipties you clip. Pull the tongue out through the buckle. Now you have some spare buckles. The shaft of a ziptie runs straight through a fan or a fan+shroud, through your heatsink, and out the other side, where it meets one of your spare buckles. Now you can mount most fans to essentially any heatsink. A ziptie screw in action. A really classic use of ziptie screws: Many thanks to Dirtyworks from this thread. Then go to this thread to really see zipties at work! And here: Pic posted by ffejrxx. And flexible, too: Posted by johny24 here.       Posted by reisya at post #57, this thread.   ------------------------------------------------------------------------   Here I needed to put a prototype 120x15mm Cooler Master fan on my Megahalems.   (A poem) None of my clips would do. I had to use a ziptie screw.

This works great on heatsinks but watch out for vibrations if you try doing this on a a case. My friend has one of these on his case and it vibrates.
